I sent my Mom, at her request, Marney's birthday wish list. One of the items was a can on paint. Marney has been wanting her room painted since we moved in, and I have not had the time or energy to fill that request. So I half-jokingly included in parentheses (and Dad too for the weekend, to help her paint!) Well, lo and behold, Mom e-mailed me back and said, "I think we can make that happen. " Woo-Hoo!
As an extra added bonus, Jacob was included in the package!
Hard at work.
Out for a walk in the woods, on an unusually dreary day.
Jacob faithfully wore his rosary. I still have it, Jake! I promise to send it soon.
The finished product. A happy girl, and a cute room.
Thank you so much to our family for being spontaneous and making this happen, we are all so grateful. So far since we moved, we have had a visit of some sort to look forward to every 12 weeks or so. I has helped so much. We are very lucky to have family that cares enough to make such an effort. Looking forward to our next get together in March!
Our girl turned 11 on Tuesday. We celebrated Saturday with a trip to her favorite swim supply store in the big city and dinner out at PF Changs, yum. Tuesday night she opened her presents sent from far and wide, and ate cake. I made this chocolate deliciousness found on piterest, double yum!
She is growing up way too fast, but making us very proud in the process. We love you Marney!
